Today marks the beginning of our 2015 season recruitment drive. With a 10 game season approaching from April, we look to get back into action on Sunday 25th January 2014.

On this day, our current squad will return to training and begin the pre-season preparations after 2 months rest. However, this session will also be a “rookie day” and the perfect opportunity to get involved.  This isn’t a “combine” where you will be assessed (yet) – it is an opportunity to get involved and see what we do.

Are you looking to play a new sport? Have you played previously before and want to return? Do you want to push your fitness now it’s the New Year? Everyone is welcome!

All you need to do is bring suitable boots (not trainers – the ground is soft in January), a change of clothes (you will get muddy!) and some water with you to Ashington Rugby Club from 10am.

The session costs nothing and so far we have nearly 60 people attending the event. We aim to perform some basic fitness drills, skill sets and give everyone a taste of the different positions and skills we require – meaning you can try them all to see what you enjoy.  Our current roster will be involved too and the coaches will be there to answer any questions you may have.

So, if you want to get involved now, we have an event up and running on our Facebook page that you can join, ask questions and find out up to date information about the event. Click here to access it.

We look forward to seeing you all there!
